VCE MATHEMATICS TUTOR

VCE is an important milestone for students across Victoria. It represents the culmination of 13 years of schooling and the key to opening the door to one’s dream career. Our VCE program is designed to support high school students across Victoria in realising their full potential, especially those who, for reasons that are largely outside of their control, are finding it difficult to achieve their personal goals. Unlike many traditional VCE programs, which charge exorbitant fees that serve only to widen the gap of disadvantage, our VCE program, delivered by extraordinary high school graduates out of their own generosity of spirit, operates on a pay-what-you-can model, with all profits going to a designated cause committed to advancing a specific SDG at the end of the year.
